He does all of Jonas' jewels and I guess they've forged some sort of relationship. The LRG thread on Niketalk is almost 200 pages long. Ben convinced cats that the Dead Serious hoody (aka the ugliest thing I've ever seen) was hot, and before you knew it, Karmaloop was selling the joint for $400.
I've dealt with Ben a few times and he's a cool person. It's unreal how much influence he has on kids (and on the flipside, it's unreal how much influence Niketalk has on trends, etc). I remember when the first series of SB's came out, Ben made a post on them, and overnight the sneakers were worth almost a G. He's the single reason why SB's are what they are (no, not garbage, but seriously overhyped Nikes).
